I'll draw a circle for empty room from the impression that I got for an empty room and I'll put an X on occupied room.

But that first room was empty; that second room was occupied by, I believe, that guy I was supposed to see the other night in the session here. This was.. tkais., a third room, I get the impression` t was supposed -to- be occupied; it is occupied but there wasn't ar13n there, OK, and. then it went on and I got that there was someone here; that's the half bald headed man and :'here I couldn't make it out but kind YofNA skipped one room and then you had..,a prn, skip I ne room, had a person--so :hat you had a total of aboueig" ?p ersons in this front session,.. section here, OK.

OK, so in the middle section on the second story of that building I got the impression that the younger people to include the Marines were quartered in that area, OK, and I'll reiterate, thought I saw the important people-what I... what... they seemed important were in the front portion of the annex-the right annex were the.. possibly the two ladies were in the right annex and then there were some other personnel, in mos cases two to a room, sometimes three, and same two to a room or maybe three ing here.. .same thing here.

I ended up with that impression, I started with very few and then I started looking to the rooms and you told me to start looking into the rooms and the more I looked the more people I found and I kept finding more-more and more people. #66 OK. Good. #8 But this room No. 2 I think is the guy that you wanted me to find the other day that was... that was a very vivid impression. And another very, very vivid impression was next to this room there was... should have been occupied but there was nobody there, next to that room, in room No. 4 here on this sketch is that half bald headed man which I keep seeing on and off for some reason.

Is there anything you want to add then? #8 No. #6.5 OK #8, during the session then you felt that there were several people that you might be able to identify. What I'ld like to do now is have you look at some photographs that I have and see if you can come up with any that looks like that ones that you have. We'11 put this on a pause mode while we look over the photos and then we'll come back on for the record afterwards. OK? #8 OK. #6.5 OK, we're back on live here sort of speak. OK, in reference to your Drawing No. 3, where you have indicated that some possible hostages were in different rooms, in room #2, you have identified and feel pretty good about this photo that I'm holding and on the back of it and you haven't seen these names. #8 I've seen( Kalp's name before. #6.5 Yea, but not on this.. .today, OK. You've seen his name before, his name is Malcolm Kalp and is that who you feel is in that room? #8 Yea. I got more ...a better, more vivid impression of him because I was looking for him before #6.5 OK, anything special you wanna say about him? #8 Yea, I had about five minutes at the end of the session to look around and look into the rooms and...ah...I was trying to make him feel at ease or trying to communicate with him and...ah...this seemed as if it lasted a split second but I'm sure it was more... longer than that on tape, and... ah...ah...I got the first expression was Barbarosa; either I gave it r he gave it to me and then it ended u Barbara d... and... seemed this someth we agreed on; I was Approved For Release - 00788R000800500001-9 Approved For Release 2000/0870 7 88R000800500001-9 trying to get the impression across to him that he wasn't going off his noodle or anything, that this was a way of getting to him and he seemed very level headed mentally, so I gave it a try. #6.5 OK. Good. OK, in the room that's marked Room 4 on that same diagram, and there was another individual ' in there, and you were less certain about this one I understand, that you identified someone that looks like William E. Belk. #6.5 Any other comments. #8 Again, I identified him only because of the... mainly because he was tall, the hair line, it's not the first time I got the impression of a...what I been defining as a half bald headed man, his hair /,. less certainty than VO p but that's an impression there. #6.5 OK. And then on your diagram on the room with an X mark, possible two women. You've looked at all the photographs that we had and you've identified one as possibly, and I use the word possibly so correct me if I'm wrong, being Ann Swift, also known as Elizabeth Swift, I guess. OK. And these are her photos, anything you want to say about those. #8 Yea. The reason I identified those is because of the hairdos; the impressions I got when I looked into that room that there was a younger...ah... women ...ah...mid, late 20's with a black hair style falling on either side of the face and there was a taller.. .ah.. .older women in her early, mid-30's, that's not very old... #6.5 Yea, watch yourself. #8 Ah...with lighter hair. . .with much lighter hair... ah...going up over her head and that's as-that's as close as what I can see. #6.5 The last one you were describing... that would be Ann Swift, OK.

OK. Now, for the record we'll make sure that we give both copies. Good luck on trying to get a copy of this thing, right.--OK. OK, now the other one that you have identified as possibly being in there was the younger one? #6.5 OK, now for the that he has picked out the daughter, of looking like the daughter of COL Holland, OK. That's OK. So go ahead and tell us about that. #8 OK. The reason that I picked her is because she was-she was the younger of the two and because of her hairdo, mainly; the general facial features, but mainly the hairdo where the dark hair fell on... evenly on both sides of the face. OK, and...ah...among that entire corridor was... sort of jumped out at me that there were a couple of women in there, that's why I gave a little bit more.
